SENGLEA ----- Grand Master Claude De La Sengle

By Edcat55
Grand Master Claude De La Sengle GAVE city status and was named after him. Senglea played an important role in the Great Siege of Malta in 1565 and remained unconquered. The city was given the title Civitas Invicta (meaning "Unconquered City") by Grand Master Jean Parisot de Valette. Thousands of inhabitants of the city were killed in a plague epidemic in 1676.

In 1798, Senglea was involved in the blockade against NAPOLEON bONAPARTE'S French forces, who were ousted from Malta in 1800. WITH THE HELP OF THE BRITISH AND PORTUGUESE FLEETS.

A beautiful image Edwin. I like the contrast between the warm colours of the buildings and the colder colours of the yachts. I also like the slight movement in the water creating interesting patterns in the reflections.

White boats can be pain for photographers, but here in the shade they provide a nice cool colour contrast and a lead in to the building, as well as a frame for the beautiful reflection. A well seen and taken picture.

Wow what an image of great contrast - between the white hulls and the archaic buildings of the city bathed in that wonderful light - fantastic.Smile

One shows how much I miss the old NORMAL, as I would normally go off Hamilton's Harbour and see our ships but since mid March I have not and been on Hamilton's Mountain just a few times.

Thank you for allowing me to remember the old NORMAL and hopefully soon go back to the new normal of walking around with masks etc but still pleasant to see the classical buildings with their owners modern toys.
